We could have said goodbye,
Lost track of one another
And gone on with our own
But we couldn’t.
We could have lived the lie
That said it was done and over
And time heals all things
But it doesn’t.
We could have asked why
We didn’t make it or fake it
All these years apart
But we didn’t.
We had so much yet never touched
The friend we called our lover.
Now time has passed and we might last
Enough to soon discover…
That goodbye isn’t all there is
When things just don’t work out.
We’ve shared too much and now as such
We’ve learned what love’s about.
I’m glad we took the time today
To talk it through, make it okay
And be the friends that were in our stars
Closer now, and not so far.
